Think cheeses, fruit, cured meats and fresh dips. Simply select at checkout, or browse them here.

Melt into ultimate serenity surrounded by a chorus of wildlife. Whether it’s a back, neck and shoulder massage,  full body indulgence or rejuvenating facial, we’ll send one of our talented beauty therapists  your way. Choose your treatment at check out. Just leave us a note at checkout and we’ll make it happen. 


Recharge the batteries with a restorative yoga practice alfresco. Surrounded by nature’s hum. And lush greenery as far as the eye can see. Fyona from Yoga Brave is available at your cabin by appointment. Tailoring your class to suit your groups physical and emotional needs, add a calming yoga session to your stay at checkout and stretch your worries away. 

brekkie camp pack

Breakfast freshly cooked on the fire… You just can’t beat it. Really impress the guests with your masterchef skills flipping and sizzling the goods inside this mouthwatering camp pack hamper. Slow smoked bacon, farm fresh eggs, organic halloumi, Farm Bakery sourdough, vine-ripened tomatoes, gourmet sausages… We could go on. Or you could just add a brekkie camp pack to your stay at checkout. We’ll even throw in a 10 pack of Urban Brew Coffee Pods to sip over brekkie (we have the coffee machine sorted too). 

s’mores dessert box

Morish after dark dessert anyone? We thought so. Build your own Carawirry S’Mores the way they should be. Oozing with gooey marshmallow fluff, dripping in milk chocolate, all hugged with two bikkies. Make sure they’re in the snack stash when you book your stay. 

locally-made, wholesome meals

Truly escape from the everyday grind with meals made for you by our local clean foods chef. Heat and serve. Fresh, tasty, convenient. You little ripper. Add meals with your booking.


 Whatever it might be, leave a note at checkout and we’ll put the word out.


It sure is! We’ve got three kids 9 years and under who see Carawirry as their personal wonderland. (But don’t worry, we don’t let them run wild while we have guests staying). We just ask that you keep a good eye on your little adventurers while they’re on the property.

Check-in from 3 pm on your arrival date. And check-out at 11am on your final day (because, sleepins). But, if we don’t have a same day changeover, we’re happy to extend your check-out time to 1pm. Just ask us when you arrive and we’ll let you know.

Nope. Both cabins are separate (and super private) on Carawirry’s huge 250 acre property.

Yes, you’ll receive a complimentary 250MB of WiFi to use on our secure network. Settling in for a Netflix-binge? Purchase extra data when you log in, from your cabin. Here’s your price guide.

  • 1GB Data – $5
  • 5GB Data – $15
  • 10GB Data – $30
  • 20GB Data – $50

Since Carawirry’s forest is brimming with wildlife, we don’t allow any pets. Think of it this way, Fido gets a holiday from you too! Just kidding, Fido loves you… But we can assure you, you’ll definitely get your furry friend fix from resident wallaby Skip.
